What will the early access beta build of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War include?
There has not been any official announcement regarding the content of the beta build of the game. However, we can make a fair assumption from the trailer of the beta version. Players can expect some fan-favorite game modes including team deathmatch, domination, kill confirmed, etc. In addition to this, the beta version will also most likely include the new modes ‘VIP Escort’ and ‘Combined Arms.’
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War has been one of the most anticipated titles of the year. It remains to be seen if it manages to shine while Modern Warfare and Warzone are both still in their prime.
